© 2015 Special Day Wedding Photos


Special Day Wedding Photos offer wedding photography in Devon, Somerset and the whole of the Southwest.


Special Day Wedding Photos is owned by me, Devon wedding photographer Anthony Lyons.  We offer a very natural style of wedding photography here in Devon.  We like to capture your special day as it unfolds without any contrivance.  I am the principle photographer for Special Day Wedding Photos and most of the time I am able to capture your wedding day alone.  Sometimes it is necessary to have an assistant to help out at larger weddings, especially if you want the groom to be photographed getting ready, or if you just want more detail.  It is not always necessary to have an assistant as most of the time I am able to cover both wedding parties.  Having a second photographer at your wedding is a good idea, especially if you want a variety of different shots and depth.  The assistants have worked under Anthony for some time and with his guidance have proved to be a valuable asset for Special Day Wedding Photos.  It is an absolute pleasure working as a wedding photographer in Devon, and not forgetting Somerset, Bristol, and Cornwall.  I have been travelling further afield and venturing up to Warwickshire, Northamptonshire (My home county), and Hampshire.  Wedding photography allows me to feed my passion for photography. I get a real buzz when I am in amongst the wedding party, but not seen.  I just love it!  If you are looking for wedding photographers in Devon we would be delighted to help.  Our style is very much in the photo-journalism/reportage style of photography.  We try to remain as unobtrusive in our approach as possible on your wedding day.  We still take the traditional style shots, such as signing the register, group-shots etc. and it’s always nice to go and find a lovely spot in the venue or other location to photograph the bride & groom.   Please take a look at the gallery & blog to get a taste of the type of photography we offer.  Our approach is to remain unobtrusive when we are photographing your wedding day.

 ”Devon wedding photographers Special Day Wedding Photos offers documentary & traditional style wedding photography”.


We are documentary, reportage, photo-journalistic, storybook or candid photographers; whatever the wording my approach is very simple, I capture the day as it unfolds. I am unobtrusive in my approach and try to blend in as best I can. As story tellers we want to mix in as best we can and capture you and your guests enjoying the excitement of your wedding day. We do not just restrict ourselves to documenting your day, however, we are also happy to and enjoy, photographing intimate bride & groom shots in a favourite Devon location or at your venue. This is usually a good time for the bride & groom to relax and have a few intimate moments together. We are also able to provide the more traditional shots if desired and are often requested to do so.

We can design a package to suit your needs. Please feel free to contact Anthony, who will be happy to talk through your wedding day and answer any questions you may have. Please take a look at our questions and answers page – FAQ. If there is a question you have but cannot see the answer, please contact us and we will be more than happy to help.  My main enjoyment as a Devon photographer is to capture people in a natural way. Wedding photography allows me to feed this passion. Your wedding day is very important to us.  We want to document your day, providing you with a life-time of memories you can revisit time and time again.  If you would like Devon wedding photographer Anthony Lyons to capture your special day please do not hesitate to contact us.  I live in Tiverton, which is a lovely town and a great Devon location.  After contact we will arrange to meet at the venue to go through the layout of the day and discuss any ideas you may have.  The meeting is always a good time to get to know each other, walk the venue and talk through any ideas.  There are a multitude of wedding venues in Devon and I am happy to travel to all and discuss your day, so please do not hesitate to contact me.


I am often asked if I can provide wedding photography in different counties and the answer is a simple yes. We are based in Tiverton, Devon which is in a great location to service Somerset. I often travel to Somerset as a wedding photographer. There are many beautiful venues and the landscape is beautiful. If you would like me to come and provide photography for your wedding in Somerset please do not hesitate to contact me. In the mean time please feel free to look at a Somerset wedding, at a beautiful venue and location, Orchardleigh House.

 “We are not just Devon wedding photographers, we are happy to travel to Somerset, Cornwall and the whole of the Southwest and beyond”.


It would be nice just to photograph weddings in Devon but life’s just not like that I’m afraid.  Which is great! I like a bit of travel.  I sometimes even get to stay in a Travel Lodge!!! I know, how the other half live!!  So I am happy to provide, not only weddings in Devon, but also wedding photography in Somerset which is very close to Tiverton.  It would be sad not to offer my services further afield other than Devon as there are so many beautiful venues out there. We would also be happy to travel up to Bristol, in fact we frequently cover the whole of the Southwest. The Southwest has many beautiful counties and we are very lucky to be providing our services here.  There are some beautiful venues here in Devon such as Bickleigh Castle, Escot House, Combe House, The Deer Park Country House Hotel as well as countless others.

As already stated we can travel all over Devon, Somerset, Bristol & Cornwall to photograph your wedding so do not worry, you are not too far away.   Please take a look at a recent wedding at a stunning country house in Devon, the Deer Park country Hotel, it was a pleasure to photograph. Devon wedding photography.  Another stunning Devon venue is the lovely Combe House.  To look at an example of a wedding at Combe House please follow the link Wedding Photography in Devon

The same applies to Cornwall. We are happy to travel to Cornwall to provide wedding photography. Cornwall has some really spectacular coast-lines and beautiful landscapes. If you have a favourite location where you would like to do some intimate bride & groom shots, please do not hesitate to say. There are some lovely and unusual locations to cater for many different tastes. Please take a look at this unusual but lovely location on the Lizard in Cornwall, Cornish Camels. It was a beautiful sunny day and was absolutely perfect for a wedding. I really enjoyed photographing the wedding and we had a lot of fun capturing some stunning shots. Cornwall wedding photography

Recently we were booked to cover weddings in Northamptonshire, Warwickshire, and Hampshire. It is wonderful, flattering, and a pleasure to photograph weddings in further afield locations. Please take a look at the blog post, Warwick wedding photography.  So if you are looking for a wedding photographer in a county other than Devon, Somerset or the Southwest please do not hesitate to contact us. We are happy to cover the whole of the UK.  I look forward to talking to you soon.
